UKIP party election broadcast
Starbuck [12:45] Comments: 2 []

I was unfortunate to witness a UK Independence Party election broadcast last night ahead of the local elections. I doubt any of you sat through it.

The non-Kilroy-Silk who presented it urged voters to "cast a protest vote for any of the smaller parties" rather than the 3 main organisations. It didn't have to be UKIP.

I shuddered. Fascist scum like the British National Party tend to attract protest voters disillusioned with politicians, and however bad UKIP are the BNP are ten times worse.

And with recent surveys revealing that an uncomfortable proportion of the population would consider voting BNP, this is something that needs to be addressed.

Let's face it, with the "I'm not racist but" attitude of those wanting to "protect our country from the flood of immigrants" who are "swamping into our country" and "stealing all our jobs / benefits / traditions" this nation full of nationalists isn't a very pretty one.

Why are we so ready to be "informed" by the ultra-cynical and ultra-negative popular tabloids on race and immigration (and especially the poisonous "black top" Dailies, the Mail and Express, perhaps better descibed as the "black shirt" Dailies)? Do they just reflect the ugly side of our country's nationalism, or do they magnify it?

Don't know - but it really scares me. I don't think those who vote for these evil people really think through what they are doing....

Misguided and misled, ill-informed and ignorant.

And because they've been led to feel angry and bitter at their lot, scumbags like the BNP can easily target their perceived woes. It makes me angry.
